  • PORTUGEUSE CONQUEST IN THE AMERICAS
  • The colony of Brazil is on the northeastern side of South America and was colonized by the Portuguese.
  • BY MADDY JAVIER
  • The Native Brazilians (indegenous people) inhabitated the land before the Portuguese arrived.
  • The Portuguse gained the territory along the northeastern coast of South America after the Treaty of Tordesillas with Spain. It wasn't until the French & Dutch began to visit that the land sparked the interest of the King and he began granting large coastal territories to colonize.
  • There's no way these people can come into our home and force us into slaves for their benefit!
  • Colonial life in Brazil revolved around the sugar mill or "engenho." Colonists tried to force the natives into heavy labor and work on the plantations.
  • Native Brazilians resisted Portuguese efforts to force them into servitude and smallpox brought by the colonists killed the population.
  • Since the indigenous people won't cooperate and plus they're all dying, why can't we just import African slaves for our sugar plantations?
  • To oversee affairs and implement royal policy of the Portuguese Brazilian government, the King of Portugal dispatched a governor to the colony.
  • THE END
